MSC in Philadelphia Inquirer: Natural Gas Drives Pa. Air Quality Progress

Banning the safe production and use of clean, affordable and domestic natural gas, as shared in a Feb. 14 column, is a surefire way to reverse environmental progress and squash sustained economic growth, especially among Pennsylvania’s working middle class.

MSC in Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Impact fee provides many benefits in Pa.

We agree with the Post-Gazette’s support for strengthening Pennsylvania’s infrastructure, but the paper’s Feb. 13 editorial “Paying Their Fair Share” ignores the current funding solution that generates hundreds of millions of dollars annually for infrastructure, community and environmental programs. Pennsylvania’s unique tax on natural gas — the impact fee — is projected to generate nearly […]

MSC in Bucks County Courier Times: Prohibiting shale development defies common sense

For more than a decade, responsible shale development across Pennsylvania has generated unprecedented opportunities to provide sustainable and broad-based economic and environmental benefits to our region and the nation. Unfortunately, a Feb. 4 editorial ignores these facts in misguidedly supporting an unconstitutional ban on safe, responsible natural gas development in the Delaware River Basin. While we cannot […]

Pa.’s Top Environmental Regulator: Natural Gas Improves Air Quality, Further Progress to Come

The increased production and use of local natural gas have already allowed Pennsylvania to meet key environmental goals, but there’s additional opportunity for clean air progress as more natural gas is used in power generation and transportation, the state’s environmental protection secretary said during a budget hearing this week. During testimony at a House budget […]
